Types of headaches


Headaches are so common that they have become one of life’s routine/problems. They’re so routine that you usually just take a couple of pain relievers, go on about your business and forget about it. But did you know that there are different kinds of headaches?

Tension headaches:
These are caused mostly by physical or psychological stress (or both) from muscles contractions around the eyes, face, neck and even shoulders; or an imbalance in some of the naturally occurring neuro-transmitters or brain chemicals.
Cluster headaches:
These are also known as histamine caphalgia and cause an excruciating pain on one side of the head around the eye or nose. They may recur several times within a couple of days. Sometimes they are variants of migraine headaches, but may also be due to histamine release, and therefore, be related to allergic sinusitis.
Sinusitis:
This inflammation of the lining of one of the eight sinus cavities can cause a deep, dull, chronic ache around the eyes, nose and head.
TMJ pain:
Temporomandibular Joint pain is the result of an imbalance in the teeth or jaws resulting from a mechanical problem or muscle contraction around the joint where the lower jaw joins the face (on the side of the cheekbone in front of the ear).
Rebound headache:
Overuse of pain medication, caffeine or sedatives causes rebound headaches when these substances wear off. The result is usually greater discomfort. Mild to moderate dull pain, or diffuse pain over the forehead or back of the head is what can be experienced.
Migraine headaches:
These are severe, debilitating and recurrent, are accompanied by disturbances of vision and/or nausea and vomiting. There is no single cause of migraine. It tends to run in families, but the exact mechanism of inheritance is not understood. In a susceptible person, a migraine may be brought on singly or in combination by stress, food (particularly chocolate, cheese and other dairy products, red wine, fried food and citrus fruits), sensory related factors (bright light, glare, loud noises), menstruation or birth control pills. Next time you get a headache, think about what type it might be and this might help in determining the proper cure.

People who are looking to ease depression may have a new treatment option--marriage
A recent study suggests that marriage provides a greater psychological boost to depressed people than to happy people, even if the marriage is so-so. Previous studies have suggested that the psychological perks of marriage depend upon marriage quality—a happy marriage rise to a happy couple, and vice versa. Other studies have shown that depressed people, who tend to communicate poorly and require more caring and support than happy people, also end up in unhappier marriages. So Adrianne Frech, a sociology graduate student at Ohio State University, and her colleague, Kristi Williams, speculated that happy people would garner more psychological perks from marriage than depressed people. To test their theory, they looked at a sample of 3,066 men and women had been interviewed and tested for depression once in either 1987 or 1988 and then again five years later. In the interviews, they were asked about the quality of their marriage (if they were married).  On average, controlling for differences in depression, subjects who had gotten married over the five-year span between the two interviews reported improved psychological well-being in the second interview--scoring an average of 3.42 points lower on the 84-point depression scale--than their counterparts who did not marry. When they teased apart how marriage affected those who had been depressed at the start of the study to those who had been happy, however, they came across something unexpected. The depressed who married scored an average of 7.56 points lower on the depression scale than the depressed who did not marry, while those who were happy got married scored only 1.87 points lower on the scale. In other words, marriage provided a much bigger psychological boost to the depressed subjects than to the happy subjects. “We were surprised,” Frech told LiveScience. “We expected the depressed to have worse marital quality and therefore benefit less from a transition into marriage.” The big remaining question, she says, is why depressed people benefit more from marriage than happy people. It could be that marriage provides the companionship and emotional support needed to help alleviate depression, she said.

Friends Assalam Alaikum!
Today I have a topic “Computer and eyes
We’re living in a world of technologies and these technologies are daily improving. Computer is the best example of latest technology. We are using computer nearly in every aspects of our life. But every time I stress on my, this formula, that every positive thing will have negative affect if it increase in its own limit. Similarly computer is very beneficial but in its limit. But before we start to use computer we should know how computer affects on our eyes and what are the safety cautions.

Look! I’ll tell you; in Computer all the images and characters are made of  pixel.  Pixel is a small discrete element that forms television image. The intensity of these pixel’s characters are higher in the center and lower towards edge. This makes difficult for our eyes to maintain focus and remain fixed onto these images. Then unintentionally our eyes loose its focus and then our eyes strain to regain its focus on the computer screen. This continues focusing struggle of eye muscles; creates fatigue, burning and tired-eyes feeling.
you may experience some related symptoms  like:

1. Headache 2. Double and blurred vision 3.
Loss of focusing ability 4.Neck and shoulder pain

 Cure and precautions: 

  • Keep your monitor minimally 20 inch and 26 inch maximally from your eyes, but my recommendation is 24 inch { you feel more comfort }.
  • Make sure your monitor is tilted at an angle of 15-20 degree from the horizontal and faces the roof.

·      Have an anti-glare screen on your monitor. 

·      During the work frequently look far distant object. 

·      Closely match the brightness of your computer according to room light. 

·      Blink more often because it rewets your eyes to avoid dryness and  

·       Irritation.  *It is advisable to use special coating anti-reflective glasses during computer work.

·       Every 30 minutes blink 10 times by closing your eyes as if falling asleep (very slowly). This will help rewet your eyes.

Thanks for being with CP and Waseem Khan - .we will be with you with another useful issue .till then Allah Hafiz.

The animals which look like plants are mostly sea animals from the tropics and subtropics. You can see them in aquariums; sea anemones, sea lilies and sea dahlias, all marvelously colored. The names of these animals are misleading as they suggest plants. With a little imagination it is easy to se the resemblance, but don't make a mistake, the ea anemone is, and always will be, an animal. These strange animals are always predators. They feed off other organisms which get caught in their brightly-colored tentacals. These tentacls are usually venomous;
The sting or paralyze the prey, which is then brought to the center of the animal. The center is a stomach and a mouth at the same time. Some animals, like the sea tree and sea bush, for instance, are able to pass by unnoticed, and catch their prey without being seen. Such animals belong to the 'primitive' or 'simple' group of animals. Their beautiful colors are designed to attract their prey. It is best not to touch them, despite the fact that they are so attractive, because their spines are poisonous.

 MISTAKEN
Assalam-O-Aliakum,
Dear fellows, how often do we see good relationships turning into bad ones, friends becoming foes and friendly atmosphere turning into a hostile one. And usually these unwanted changes are brought about by a baseless and false perception. Let me tell you a story before moving on to explain what I have just said.

There lived two shepherds, Mr. A and Mr. B, who were fast friends of each other. All others in the village knew that anything may happen, but these two friends can never be separated. It happened so that there came another man in that village. People told him about Mr. A and Mr. B's evergreen friendship. He vowed that he will break their friendship. The villagers told him that we have seen these two friends staying together through thick and thin over the years and nothing whatsoever could weaken their relationship. The newcomer asked the villagers to give him a day's time and see how he turns Mr. A and Mr. B against each other. Next, the newcomer went to these two shepherds who were together grazing their cattle in the fields. He invited the two to dinner at his place that night. The two friends mutually agreed. At night, they reached the newcomer's home. While the three people were having a jovial chitchat after a hearty meal, the host asked Mr. B to come aside and listen to a secret that he (the host) had to tell him. Mr. B replied to the host that he can say whatever he has to say right there, as there were no secrets between him and his friend. The host insisted Mr. B to just give him a minute and listen to him in seclusion. Mr. B said," Mr. Host, you might be seeing two people infront of you but Mr. A and me are infact two bodies but one soul" . However the host kept insisting. Seeing all this, Mr. A thought that my friend will tell me whatever the host says so why not just fulfill our host's little request. So he said to Mr. B, since their host was pleading so much, so he should do as the host says. Mr. B agreed.  He and the host got up. The host took Mr. B a few feet away from the eating area, but making sure that Mr. A could still see them clearly. The host put his hand on Mr. B's ear and just moved his lips without uttering a word and after few seconds dropped his hand as to symbolize that he had said what he had to. Mr. B, puzzled, inquired the host what he wanted to say but the host replied," that’s all I had to say". When the two friends left the host's house, Mr. A asked Mr. B what the host had said. Mr. B replied that he said nothing but Mr. A did not believe his friend and said, "I myself saw the host putting his hand on your ear and saw his lips moving. How can I trust you that he did not say you anything?". The two friends got into argument, each trying to justify his viewpoint and soon they lost trust that they had in each other and their friendship that had stood the test of time, crumbled.

See fellows, how even our eyes can deceive us. And more than often we tend to believe something said by a stranger about our friends. And our happy terms with our close ones come to end just because we believed in something about whose authenticity we are not even sure of. So guys and gulls, watch out and beware next time someone tries to beguile you.
